  • 9x13 inch pan





  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan (I used non-stick cooking spray).
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the cake mix, butter and egg, and press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • The crust should not come up the sides.
  • Bake for 7 minutes and remove from the oven. The crust will not look done.
  • While the crust is baking, mix together the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, egg, pecans and coconut.
  • Pour evenly over the warm crust.
  • Sprinkle evenly with the chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 24-30 minutes, until the top is a light golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and cool completely before cutting into squares.
